What was originally billed as a peaceful protest quickly turned violent. The bigot didn’t end up speaking to a crowd of several hundred students. Instead, he spoke to a crowd of millions, during an extended interview on Fox News and a series of rants on his Facebook page, where he claimed he’d been evacuated from the campus.
This was not a well thought out protest as, instead of letting the speaker give a speech to just a few people at the school, he is now being heard by millions around the world. If you don’t agree with what someone is saying, disagree with them, but don’t play right into their hands.

I completely agree. Bears have always had a reputation of peacefully protesting and fighting for what’s right – whether it affects them or not. This was definitely (in my opinion) a publicity stunt by Milo – considering the only violence from the event was brought upon by local anarchists – not students.
I was thinking the same thing.. (publicity stunt by Milo).. but I really think that might be too sophisticated for him to have pulled off.
